You's a nasty (nasty), trashy (nasty)
Sleazy (nasty), classless (nasty)

Nasty, put some clothes on, I told ya
Don't walk out your house without your clothes on, I told ya
Girl, what you thinkin' 'bout lookin' that to' down, I told ya
These men don't want no hot female
That's been around the block female, you nasty, girl

Nasty, put some clothes on, I told ya
Don't walk out your house without your clothes on, I told ya
Girl, what you thinkin' 'bout lookin' that to' down, I told ya
These men don't want no hot female
That's been around the block female, you nasty, girl

Shakin' that thang on that man
Lookin' all stank and nasty
You swore you look cute, girl, in them dukes?
Booty all out, lookin' trashy
Sleazy, put some clothes on, I told ya
Don't walk out your heezy without clothes on, I told ya

You nasty girl, you nasty, you trashy
You classless, girl, you sleazy, you freaky
I never met a girl that does the things that you do
Change don't come your way, it will come back to you
Put some clothes on, girl

Nasty, put some clothes on, I told ya (I told ya)
Don't walk out your house
Without your clothes on, I told ya (put some clothes on)
Girl, what you thinkin' 'bout lookin' that to' down, I told ya
These men don't want no hot female (no, no)
That's been around the block female, you nasty, girl

Nasty, put some clothes on, I told ya
Don't walk out your house without your clothes on, I told ya
Girl, what you thinkin' 'bout lookin' that to' down, I told ya
These men don't want no hot female
That's been around the block female, you nasty, girl

Booty all out, tongue out her mouth
Cleavage from here to Mexico
She walks with a twist, one hand on her hip
When she gets with ya, she lets it go
Nasty, put some clothes on, you look to' down
Nasty, don't know why you will not sit down

Boots on her feet, swear she's in heat
Flirtin' with every man she sees
Her pants hangin' low, she never say no
Everyone knows she's easy
Nasty, put some clothes on, you lookin' stank
Nasty, where's your pride, you should be ashamed

You make it hard for women like me
Who try to have some integrity
You make it hard for girls like myself
Who respect themselves and have dignity
You're nasty, girl, you're nasty, you're trashy
You're classless, girl, you're sleazy, you're freaky
N-A-S-T-Y, you're nasty, F-R-E-A-K-Y, you're freaky
Girl, where's your P-R-I-D-E? Put some clothes on

Nasty, put some clothes on, I told ya (I told ya)
Don't walk out your house without your clothes on, I told ya
Girl, what you thinkin' 'bout lookin' that to' down, I told ya
These men don't want no hot female (no, they don't)
That's been around the block female, you nasty, girl

Nasty, put some clothes on (you're nasty, girl
I told ya (you're nasty, put some clothes on, don't walk out your house))
Don't walk out your house without your clothes on, I told ya
Girl what you thinkin' bout lookin' that to' down, I told ya
These men don't want no hot female (don't want you, don't want you)
That's been around the block female (don't want you no more, oh)
You nasty, girl

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

You so nasty, girl, you so, you so nasty, girl
You so, you so nasty, girl, you so
You so nasty, girl, put some clothes on, girl

Nasty, put some clothes on, I told ya
Don't walk out your house without your clothes on, I told ya
Girl, what you thinkin' 'bout
Lookin' that to' down, I told ya (woman to woman)
These men don't want no hot female (girl, put your clothes on)
That's been around the block female, you nasty, girl

Nasty, put some clothes on, I told ya (you nasty, girl)
Don't walk out your house (you so, you so nasty, girl)
Without your clothes on, I told ya (you so, you so nasty, girl)
Girl, what you thinkin' 'bout lookin' that to' down, I told ya
These men don't want no hot female (you so nasty, girl)
That's been around the block female, you nasty, girl

Nasty, girl, yeah, you so, you so, you so nasty, girl
You nasty, nasty, nasty, nasty girl

    You have to love how they sing this song and yet they wear next to nothing themselves. It's not like they are the best thing to happen to the Women's Movement...

    They have the fucking cheek to sing this then in the next breath sing songs like "Bootilicious" while wearing the most revealing clothes on the planet...sure the song has a good meaning to it, but the women singing it are hypocrites.

    This song came on at a club once and all the trahiest girls were dancing to it like whores and poledancers... it was the funniest thing ever. They missed the point completely lol.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
